Here is a little teaser to one of the Projects I have been working on.
This is a grouping of Signs for Stacey's Wedding. They were lots of fun to do and I took a much more formal approach to painting them which demanded lots of patience!
They are not necessarily difficult to do yourself But they take a supper steady hand and lots of time. This one I definitely could not do in front of the TV. It required my full attention!!
I printed out the words onto paper in the fonts we wanted.
I used Chevalier Becker Street and Engravers MT.
I traced them onto graphite paper over the sign bases. This is the first time I have ever used graphite paper and it was soooo easy! I had considered using my Silhouette to make stencils but I thought in this case this was easier.
This is a snippet from the wedding invite which was the inspiration for the Chevalier font.
After tracing with the graphite paper it looks a little messy but this is where that steady hand and a good paintbrush come in. I used a small flat angled brush to do all of the lettering.
Looks pretty good!
This is a little free hand arrow I did.
The end! I cannot wait to show you the end results. Better than I thought, truth be told! You'll have to wait till after the wedding this weekend to see how everything turned out:)
